Burnley Eyeing This Fantastic Wide Player: Can He Elevate Them To Greater Heights?

Promotion to the top flight and consequences thereafter have been pretty good for Burnley as they are making massive strides in the Premier League table. At the onset, it looked like they would be engaged in a relegation fistfight yet again but considering how the scenario has been developing, it might not be biased to underline that the Clarets can very likely end their season in the top half of the league table.

Sean Dyche is at the centre of everything; he knows he can deliver big this time around and it is essential for him to make the required tweaks in the side by bringing a spectacular face into his ranks. Initially, Burnley were determined to get Norwich City’s Robbie Brady but their hopes were dented after two of their bids went in vain. Apparently, they have channelised their attention to Hull City’s Robert Snodgrass and are in pursuit to lure him to the Turf Moor.

The 29-year-old has had a blistering season so far with as many as 7 goals and 3 assists to his name. He has been a genuine threat to the opponents, has created 45 chances, kept his side ticking with 583 completed passes with a pass accuracy of 84% on an average, and no wonder Dyche is eager to sign him after failing to get hold of Brady. Burnley need a prolific winger and Snodgrass ticks almost all the boxes.

Unlike Burnley, who are sitting pretty tight in the middle of the league table, Hull City are certainly amidst all sorts of trouble. They are one of the sides who are likely to get demoted and manager, Marco Silva, knows the importance of having someone like Snodgrass in his side.

More than anything else, the Scottish international’s continuation of a positive impact is arguably the last ray of hope for the Tigers. Snodgrass still has 18 months left in his contract (let’s not forget that he had turned down a new contract that was offered to him in December), thus implying that if Dyche places a bid which the Tigers cannot refuse, they can hope for getting their man.

The former Norwich City wide man has bundles of top flight experience under his belt and he himself might be looking for an outlet in this transfer window. He has always been a consistent performer and if Burnley can manage to get him out of the KCOM Stadium, they can very well stay in the mix of finishing their season quite higher than what they initially set.
